The Little Darlings

Scene: A minivan stuck in traffic somewhere in Central Pennsylvania

7-year-old: Next year for Halloween, I’m going to be a ballerina.

7-year-old’s Friend: We don’t celebrate Halloween. That’s Satan’s birthday.

7yo: No is isn’t!

Friend: Uh-huh!

7yo: No way. There’s no such thing as Satan.

Friend: YES THERE IS!

7yo: No…there isn’t.

Friend: If you go Trick-or-Treating, you’re going to HELL!

7yo: Please. God would never send a kid to hell for doing anything.

Friend: Don’t you want to go up to heaven when you die?

7yo: Heaven isn’t in the sky. No one knows exactly where heaven is….

Mom: Hey, did you hear about the new Barbie? I hear she has pink hair and comes with a pony!

Friend: You are so going to hell…

Mom: …and she’s a princess!

7yo: Mom, tell her that kids don’t go to hell and that thing you were telling me how people make up stories to explain heaven…

Mom: Oh! I forgot! AND she’s even a bride AND she can do magic fairy tricks.

7yo: …but that no one is really sure what it’s like after we die….

Friend: Fairies are Satan’s helpers. I’m telling my mom that you and your mom hate heaven and that you love Satan‘s helpers.

Silence.

Mom: Go ahead. But if you do, you’ll go to hell.

Silence.

End Scene.
